of people will be out where mahmoud ahmadinejad will be speaking today. let me bring back the panelists. what is the question we know that's going to be rise to the top? could it change the equation in some way? >> i thing we could. i think what most americans are thinking about is, hey, the em ba is i's under attack. you're right. foreign policy is more of an issue in in election than it was in 2008 which is something very few people would have predicted going into 2008 for sure. it's unpredictable with the arab spring. it's a very fluid dynamic. president obama gave a speech at the u.n. yesterday which i thought was interesting and pretty incoherent. said we're not going to determine the democratic outcomes of what's happening there and at the same time the syrian leader must step down and a nuclear weapon for iran is intolerable. i think both parties have a pretty good co-heirens about the u.s. power in that world and that's going to make things pretty dynamic for a long time. >> is it unclear? >> i think it's an important thing and i think it has been been too little of a debate. th

at the united nations as mahmoud ahmadinejad delivers one of the least fiery stages ever. ahmadinejad shied away from the usual saber rattling. we didn't hear about israel being wiped off the map like he said in 2005 or even earlier this week saying that israel had no roots in the middle east. after eight years in power, he is a lame duck president. the influence is dwindling at home after parliamentary losses. protesters are constantly following ahmadinejad and the massive entourage of 140 people around the u.n. here in new york. inside the u.s. delegation boycotted the speech. the president said the timeline is not unlimited and israeli prime minister netanyahu claims iran is just months away from a nuclear bomb. others suggest iran is not even close. show of strength, the military unveiled a new drone this week which they claim can reach israeli and u.s. bases in the region. the u.s. warned in the past that loose talk of war benefits iran driving up oil prices and critics say the u.s. should take iran more seriously. well, with us now is msnbc contributor, an israeli j

to president mahmoud ahmadinejad at the address of united general assembly. as you saw several cutaways, the seats are empty. protesters, they were gathered outside the u.n. objecting to the iranian leader being given a world stage for this often inflammatory rhetoric that we've heard in the past. this is his eighth time appearing there. many also objecting to him speaking onhe holiest day, yom kippur. what do you make of it? his eighth address? >> it's very concerning that a man who suppressed his own people talks about freedom and about love and about humanity and about all of that while he's actually imprisoning most of them, especially his opposition daily, torturing them, killing them, giving orders to -- he's the guy who stole the election in 2000et. ty arab springs started in iran in 2009 when thousands went in the streets and said the election was not fair and the election was won by their own man. so, you know, it's a little bit weird to hear him talking about all of these loving values, but the concerning part is when he talk about the atomic bomb. when he said, we are -- you

a nuclear weapon. >> obviously, you have mr mr. netanyahu referring to mahmoud ahmadinejad's speech earlier before the u.n. the same rhetoric we heard. a call for the destruction and elimination of israel. israel says there's an imminent threat. there's not an agreement in the country to what iran will do and about iran. we have factors put into place here. we're in a general election, and we have governor romney attempting to use the president's words against him regarding israel. i think it is important to note that benjamin netanyahu said under the obama administration these strict sanctions were pult into place, and they have worked. praising, if you will, the obama administration. with all of that said, his speech boiled down to, there's an imminent threat. he compared it to the holocaust as well, and he believes that action must be taken within the next year it sounds. >> yeah. it will be interesting to see in the text day or two how the obama administration responds. we knew this red line speech was coming. we knew that the obama administration and netanyahu specifically did not agre
